The film was untitled till the first couple of schedules were completed and finally the producers finalized Alex Pandian as they felt it would be apt for the characterization of Karthi.
The first look posters of the film have already raised everyone’s expectations on the film with Karthi looking awesome with local thug looks amidst of slum.
Anushka Shetty has been signed opposite Karthi in female lead role and she was initially considered for the heroine’s character in remake of her hit Telugu movie Vikramakudu. Santhanam will be almost like a second hero and Milind Soman who played Karthi’s villain in Paiyaa will reprise his role here as well.
Since it’s a commercial movie, director Sooraj has signed Devi Sri Prasad to give the peppy tunes that will set celebration for the universal audiences.
Saravanan is handling cinematography while Praveen-Srikanth will be working on edit.
Ganesh Kumar is choreographing action sequences.
The collaboration of Karthi and K.E. Gnanavel Raja has been tremendous that started from Paruthiveeran.
The film is produced at a whooping budget and is proceeding faster with the shooting schedules.
